Local authorities and cooperatives are key to citizen energy transition - 2014 EUSEW

Wednesday, 25 June 2014

Citizens can play an active role in Europe’s energy market in the future, a major international event on renewable and efficient energy will hear this week.

Legal and financial barriers currently prevent citizens from participating more effectively in decisions about Europe’s energy generation, but these can be overcome with help from local governments and cooperatives, as Friends of the Earth Europe, Climate Alliance, REScoop.eu, Cooperatives Europe, CECODHAS and Euro Coop will say during the event on the 26th of June.
